You can download the free Papers app for iPhone/iPad here.

Sometimes you need to create a new publication type manually in your Papers library. For example, you might need to add a book reference that you only have as a physical copy. Use the 'Create new paper' option to create a new paper type (article, book, media, patent & law, reports & references) in your library. Fill in the metadata manually in the Inspector Info window that is opened automatically when you have created a new paper type.


  • Tap on the arrow icon in the main library screen.

  • Tap 'Create new paper'.

  • Select the correct paper type.

  • A new inspector editor opens where you can fill in the metadata information.
